A comedy
by Sidney Howard

Directed by Jeanne Johnston
Produced & Stage Managed by JoAnne Lemenille

The Late Christopher Bean

By the acclaimed author of They Know What They Wanted and The Silver Cord, this play opens some years after the death of acclaimed artist Christopher Bean with an excited world in pursuit of his work and any details they can gather about his life and character. Yankee practicality collides with New York's sophisticated Art World in this sly comedy. All hell breaks loose when the celebrated painter's early works are traced to the humble home of a country doctor. Both a biting satire on the destructive power of greed and a touching view of a family in turmoil, this feisty comedy will have you cheering for the most unlikely heroines. Dr. Haggett and his family of patrician New Englanders own some of Bean's canvases and become avaricious when informed of their market value.

WCP is producing The Late Christopher Bean to celebrate WCP's 85th Anniversary. The Late Christopher Bean was the first production of WCP.
